Nun Recovering After Rape, Assault

Police say a retired nun who was assaulted and raped in the parking lot of a Pennsylvania church has been released from the hospital.

Authorities say the 85-year-old nun was attacked Friday morning in an Aliquippa church parking lot, and she was taken to an area hospital with a broken jaw. The unidentified member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Baden was released Sunday and is expected to make a full recovery. That's about 25 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Eighteen-year-old Andrew Bullock is being held in the Beaver County jail, unable to post bond. He's facing charges including rape and aggravated assault. Investigators say Bullock's boots matched a footprint in the snow from the scene.

Court records don't list an attorney for Bullock.

That sucks. I hope someone finds out what he did. It's not nice I'll admit but sometimes I think a little revenge is warranted.

Revenge for what?  What did this 85 year old woman  do to him?

This is so not the point of the post, but: "retired nun"? I thought becoming a nun was usually a forever kind of a thing? Or do they mean she became a nun after retiring from something else?

I'm glad they caught her attacker, and I hope she recovers well, both physically and emotionally. No one deserves to be raped, ever.

She's saying she hopes someone in prison finds out he's a rapist and rapes him back. I don't agree with her because, like I said, no one deserves to be raped, not even rapists. And more rape doesn't seem like the answer to ending rape. But anyway, she wasn't saying the woman deserved anything.

Revenge against him. For what he did to her.

Some  nuns are teachers,   some  work in health  care,  some work in orphanages.   When they get to old  to perform their duties they retire.  Just  like when a priest  gets too  old to  celebrate the mass he retires.  Some go to  nursing  homes   where they are cared for  by other  nuns  some go to regular nursing  homes when they get   to where they need more care.

They are still nuns and  priests.  Just retired.  Not  to be  confused  with  'former'  which  is when  they  leave the  the clergy.

I wasn't really thinking of rape. Chances are he'll be segregated with other sexual offenders so the rape reaction won't be so strong. There is likely a Catholic lad who has fond memories of a particular nun and I hope he beats the crap out of him.

Oh! That makes sense. I feel silly.
